A post that will make you cry - from Sand in the Gears. A good reminder that conservatives are not the cold hearted bastards that so many liberals (including myself) want to believe they are.

Si jeunesse savait, si vieillesse pouvait. The saddest true thing ever said (by Henri Estienne, 1531-98). Translation: "If youth only knew, if age only could."

thoughts and observations from the road -

There is an ungodly amount of conservative talk show radio out there on the dial - it's shocking hom much there is. Some guy subing for Rush went on a tirade of how the hard working people who make 30K a year will be taxed, forced to pay for drugs for the elderly (in the new medicare plan they're working on in DC). In turn that money will go to pay for drugs for the likes of people like Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump. I was flabberghasted. A woman who was also a self proclaimed dedicated GOP'er called to disagree with him, but he shut her down.

-The left has no real voice on the radio. Let's face it there are alot of stupid people out there, lib and con mind you. Plenty of idiots tune in to hear conservative drivel, but no liberal drivel...unfair advantage I say!

C-Span radio is awesome, but only in DC (and the web) - Heard a hearing with Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Dick Armey (R-TX). Could Dick be any more appropriately named? I can't believe how dumb he is.

Saw Geraldo Rivera while driving around in downtown Pitt - suprisingly flamboyant; tight black muscle shirt and jeans, orange sun glasses. He was in town for miners that were rescued.

Saw FDR Mem, its amazing, you must go if you are in DC (Quote FDR)

New SPY Museum in DC is amazing.
